The Echo Lift Kit is far and away the best rod package you’ll find for under $200. The rod is super easy to cast and has plenty of punch to deliver the fly. Combined with an aluminum reel with an adjustable drag, backing, fly line, leader and rod case, you can’t beat the value and performance of this kit.
Echo Lift Kit
The Echo Lift package is a great option for someone who is interested in picking up fly fishing, as a gift for a new angler, or as a backup rod to keep rolling around in the back of your truck.
The rod carries a lifetime warranty from Echo, so even if a slight mishap happens on the water, you’re covered! The reel is solid but does not carry a guarantee. We have sold a ton of these kits and have been impressed with their long term performance.
In terms of rod size, they are all 9′ 0″ in length:
- 590-4 is the all-around trout model
- 690-4 is ideal for larger trout, casting larger flies longer distances and even catching small salmon like pinks.
- 890-4 is the salmon rod of the group. It will handle steelhead, pinks, silvers and more.
The LIFT is built on the shoulders of our extremely popular ECHO Base series with updated actions to suit a wider range of casting styles.
